The global Play for Peace community celebrated its diversity this past week for World Interfaith Harmony Week. To demonstrate intercultural and interreligious dialogue and understanding, community members shared prayers, songs, and peace messages in their native languages.
Some of our Play for Peace clubs operate in communities with high levels of tension between different religious groups, working to create opportunities for children and community members to overcome their differences and create friendships. Since the first step toward overcoming tension and engaging in peaceful dialogue is understanding each each other’s point of view with an open and respectful mind, our groups often share their own rituals, prayers, and messages as a way to better understand each other.
Watch as young Play for Peace community members share their peace messages and prayers for World Interfaith Harmony Week—you’ll be inspired by their hopes and their courage.
